Ainsley Jones

Verizon is the talk of the mobile town today. Earlier today it was reported around the blogsphere including here at IT Business Edge that the company is in talks with Apple to carry two new iPhone-like phones on its network.


Now, according to The Wall Street Journal, Verizon is having discussions with Microsoft over a touchscreen-based multimedia smartphone known as Project Pink, reports Engadget. In addition, said smartphone would be developed by a third-party vendor.


This AppleInsider article notes that the device would be used to provide a boost to Microsoft's Windows Mobile operating system and advance the Windows Marketplace for Mobile.
